We had a really amazing time. Beyond our expectations. We loved the simplicity of the resort and the fact that there were so many local people around . We felt part of Fiji which we were hoping it we would. Nothing was too much trouble and your staff were always friendly and calm. We were very comfortable in our spacious cottage.
Overall the snorkelling and the talks were highlights for us. George was very organised and attentive to our needs. The big dive trip was special. We have dived in other oceans near to Africa and felt that it was a very unique and world class place, made more so by the company of the people that hosted us. Malawi is known as the warm heart of Africa and this was surely the warm heart of the Pacific.

Fiji’s place in the coral triangle

The Coral Triangle is a marine area located in the western Pacific Ocean. It stretches from Indonesia and Malaysia in the west to the Philippines in the north, and Papua New Guinea, Timor Leste, the Solomon Islands and Fiji in the east. Its name comes from the staggering number of corals found in the area: nearly 600 different species of reef-building corals alone. The region is home to

  • six of the world’s seven marine turtle species
  • and more than 2000 species of reef fish.
  • Over 120 million people live in the Coral Triangle and rely on its coral reefs for food, income and protection from storms.
  • The Coral Triangle has more coral reef fish diversity than anywhere else in the world: 37% of the world’s coral reef fish species (6,000), and 56% of the coral reef fishes in the Indo-Pacific region (4,050).

Fiji lies at the eastern extremity of the triangle and with a population of under one million, is a less populated area. Nevertheless, the reefs are an integral part of life there, and Fiji boasts an abundance of soft corals – as well as many beautiful hard corals.

Soft Coral Savusavu Fiji
Savusavu Fiji - Great Snorkeling

The reefs around Vanua Levu provide some of the most rewarding snorkelling in the world – a chance to see the famous soft corals of Fiji, swim amongst clouds of sergeant majors, anthias, damsel fish and jack fish, and see sharks, rays and turtles.

Join us for one of our 7-day Fiji Guided Snorkeling Holiday Packages including Marine Biology Lectures – a spectacular week of field trips, both in boats and from the shore.

  • On three evenings, an experienced marine biologist will give talks on the marine environment.
  • On the first day, he will come with you for an introductory snorkel
  • and the next day he will guide the snorkel and point out some of the wonders of the ocean on a field trip.
  • During the rest of the week, you will be accompanied by our staff who will guide you to the best spots for snorkeling.

Below the water is definitely the centre of the week, but we’ll also show you a lot of Fiji above the water: the following visits are included:

  • Vuadomo waterfall
  • Savusavu town
  • and a local village .

My husband and I traveled with another couple to enjoy one of Daku Resort’s snorkeling holidays. It was a great vacation–better than advertised! Fiji was beautiful. The snorkeling arrangements were first class–we were in the water 6 out of 7 days. We saw a great variety of beautiful fish, and the coral was some of the best we’ve ever seen. The post-snorkeling excursions arranged by Daku were a treat–we particularly enjoyed the pearl farm tour and our visit to a traditional village (ladies, bring a long skirt to wear to the village).

The resort is perfectly located–beautiful views of the bay, but close enough to town that one can easily walk to shop, enjoy the market or grab a bite to eat. We stayed in a 2 bedroom bay view villa and it was perfect for the four of us. We particularly enjoyed drinking our morning coffee on the veranda while soaking up the beauty of the bay and the lush landscape.
